The nice thing about this generation of consoles is the Custom Firmware Scene is both well established and the console manufactures don't care about pushing updates to break CFW anymore.

I think the PSP contains a perfect ps1 emulator, the thing is that Sony only ever released certain PSX games on the PSP, but with CFW you can convert/download PSX games in the PSP's emulation format.

No idea if PS3 has the same emulation features built in tho, but honestly CFW is worth it for playing online for games where the official servers are shut down, people play MGS4 MP still because of hacks and stuff like this. Imo software copyright on depreciated hardware is something that needs to go away. Software preservation is important and making sourcecode open source and not having the looming threat of copyright law is the best way to ensure older software/games can be enjoyed by later generations.
